- First, soundproof paint does not make a significant difference. To put it in perspective, humans perceive a loss of 10 decibels to be 50% quieter. sound deadening paint companies have yet to make a claim as great as this, despite the fact that most soundproofing products guarantee even better results.
- Second, soundproof paint can only be tinted to light pastel colors due to its high pigment content. Your décor options are limited with soundproof paint.
- Lastly, sound proofing paint is known to leave a very heavy bodied coating on the wall producing a stippled or raised texture. The upside to this textured look is that it hides surface defects and blemishes, but the problem is that in order to achieve noticeable soundproofing results, you have to apply more than one coat, which leads to even heavier texture.
